HOW TO PROPERLY SMELL A CANDLE
Building the best scents involves creating multiple scent layers, called 'notes'. When you smell your candle, see which scent layers you notice.
Top notes are the things you smell first and are often made up of fragrances that are light and fresh, such as a herbal or citrus scent. The top notes are what pull you into the scent and create a transition into the deeper middle and bottom notes.
The middle notes are what form the basis of the scent and make up most of the fragrance, often referred to as 'heart notes'. Middle scents might include fruit, spice, black pepper, and pine.
Base notes are used in complete contrast to the top notes. Rather than being fresh and invigorating, they have a richer, more complex depth to them. Base notes are often woodsy or musky and can include things such as amber, patchouli, and sandalwood.
